Salamander Designs' new 50" Double-Wide A/V System Solution Boasts Space, Simplicity, Storage and Style.

BLOOMFIELD, CT, May 15, 2008 - Salamander Designs, Ltd., a leading designer and manufacturer of modern furniture, seating and mounting products for Home Theater and A/V entertainment systems, introduces its second configuration in the increasingly popular Madrid style. Madrid audio/video entertainment cabinets lend a stylish, high -quality furniture solution, packed with practical features, that meets the needs of high -end electronic components and exceeds the expectations of entertainment consumers.


The Madrid 5028 is a sleek, fully assembled, 50" double -wide cabinet whose clean, minimalist lines recall the strong modern design influences so compelling in mid -twentieth century furnishings. Its contemporary design will appeal to customers looking for a simple, sophisticated solution to their A/V needs that also complements their décor.

Designed, engineered and manufactured by a company on the forefront of the industry, the Madrid is unique in the depth and breadth of its features. For example, it provides ample storage for TVs plus up to five other components (or 3 components and center channel speaker), a pull -out drawer for DVDs and CDs, adjustable shelf, good ventilation, easy accessibility, raceways for concealing and managing wires, and easy compatibility with IR remotes. The understated wood base conceals non -marking casters that make Madrid easy to install, move, service and clean.

The Madrid 5028 is also a model of quality construction. Measuring 50 inches wide by 28 inches high by 21.3 inches deep, it is constructed of solid hardwood and veneers. The cabinet features a sliding wood frame door with bronze -tone glass that is compatible with IR and RF remotes. The center opening provides ample space for center speakers or components and holds up to 75 lbs. It also includes a drawer with adjustable organizer that holds up to 62 DVDs or 159 CDs. This drawer features premium self -closing slides. Below the drawer a flip -down door provides even more hidden storage ideal for gaming equipment and accessories. Both the drawer and flip -down door function with black chrome retractable cabinet pulls. In addition, built -in ventilation louvers keep equipment cool for optimal performance. Each unit comes with a classic Natural Cherry veneer or a more Euro -contemporary Espresso finish on open -grain Oak veneer. The adjustable shelf supports 50 lbs. and the wood top supports up to 150 lbs., making it a practical choice for virtually all components. Sliding rear panels provide easy access to components from the back.

The Madrid 5028 ships fully assembled and is available now in Natural Cherry or Espresso Oak from Salamander Designs dealers at a suggested price of $1,299.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch.

Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
